It's always such a pick-me-up to walk into a yellow and black Bee Hive. It's like the Cheers Bar song....everybody's always glad you came. Maybe it wasn't me so much as the assurance that I always boost sales whenever I visit :)
Today was no exception.
They have a fabulous...buy one get-two-more magazine sale bin, and lots and lots of fresh new springy looking paper. I got a few Legacy and Somerset Studio mags. that I don't already own, so I have plenty of distraction to keep me busy while I sit out the gym and hone up my Photoshop skills. If you've never been to "The Hive" as it's affectionately called, I urge you to stop by, get inspired, take a class or just browse. You'll love it.
I had a great time chatting with staff and friends who popped in and out, as well as a kisses and hugs from Barb and Tony who I have not seen in a long time. I got everyone's best suggestions for Hawaii, Vancouver, and San Francisco. I love getting recommendations about places to go and things to do, so if you are so inclined...chime in!
I will be going to RubyDog's Art House in Vancouver, as well as VanDusen Botanical Garden, which I have convinced my son will be wonderful (they have a nice restaurant:)
Barb asks that I check out any scrapbooking shops I may venture across in Honolulu. There is apparently an outlet mall in San Francisco that has a Burberry Outlet. This will add the always good, little "hunt" factor to the trip.
I carried on despite the gloom and rain splotched windshield to Costco, where I was dancing in the aisles having found a new book by Sandra Gulland. She is the author of my favorite "Josephine B. Trilogy".
Set against Versailles...and I'm back in Paris again!!!! I will savor this one.
